David Kishik is the author of To Imagine a Form of Life, a series of paraphilosophical books:
Volume 1, To Imagine a Language, is an examination of the axis around which Ludwig Wittgenstein's evolving thought turns.
Volume 2, The Coming Politics, is a fragmentary investigation of the unitary power behind Giorgio Agamben's work.
Volume 3, A Theory of a City, is an imaginary sequel to Walter Benjamin's Arcades Project, set in twentieth-century New York.
Volume 4, On the Rest of the World, is a radical rereading of the opening chapters of Genesis, refitted for a post-secular world.
The final volume in this pentalogy, Self Study, will be a work of autophilosophy, revolving around the schizoid position.
David also performs in Paramodernities, Netta Yerushalmy's series of dance lectures.
Before joining Emerson he was a fellow at the ICI Berlin Institute for Cultural Inquiry.
